If you plan to apply for need-based financial aid, you must also submit
a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as quickly as possible.
You may obtain a form from Student Financial Services at (800) 737-8826

Seattle Pacificís school code for FAFSA is 003788. Click
here for more information about Tuition and Financial Aid.
The financial aid process takes approximately six weeks. To allow enough
time to determine your eligibility, the FAFSA needs to be completed
at least four to six weeks in advance of your first quarter of attendance.
If you qualify for aid, it may take several weeks into the quarter before
the process is completed and aid is received. If you do not qualify,
you will need to pay the full costs. For further information, contact
Student Financial Services.
Admission Decision. Once all
your application materials are received, your file will be reviewed.
The Admissions Committee will make a decision promptly after receipt
of a completed application. If admission is granted, you will be notified
by phone and mail within two weeks of the decision. If admission is

to completing your degree.

or for the program in full, SPU will gladly bill the company for the
